UFC News: Conor McGregor has super-fight shot down
UFC president Dana White has dismissed the notion of Georges St-Pierre fighting the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor.
“That’s probably not going to happen,” White said during a media scrum after the latest instalment of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender. “He gave up the 170-pound belt.
“He gave up 185-pound belt, you know what I mean? It’s like no, pick a division.”
McGregor and Nurmagomedov will lock horns with one another in the main event of UFC 229, which takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on October 6.
